clumsy walking

Hello, my puppy since I came to two months, he was rarely the hind legs, was very awkward, sometimes seemed as if he had no strength in his hind legs, very clumsy ...

The breeder told me I was little, I had to grow and they were very clumsy until they are bigger ...

The other day, at a dog show, to jogging, trotting very wrong with the hind legs, opened them a lot, like a duck ...
Some people told me I could be knee problem, it seems that tends to bring them together.

Dysplasia do not know if it could be because parents are free of dysplasia.

You think? it can be? I recommend radiography of dysplasia or kneeling?

I would go to the vet ASAP. It could be anything from injury to wobblers.

Never look down on someone, unless you are helping them up

Yes, take the dog to the vet.
Sure, people can give ideas but nobody can diagnose your dog over the internet.

No dog is at fault for being born into this world.

It could even be neurological.

Your first step is an exam by a good veterinarian, do the diagnostics recommended, then if needed, they can refer you to specialists.

If he doesn't do it all the time make sure you record a good quality video of it to take to the vets so they can see too!
